Question and answer
Explain the origins of the Cold War and describe how different presidential administrations, from Truman to Nixon, handled Cold War affairs.
The Cold War, often dated from 1947 to 1991, was a sustained state of political and military tension between powers in the Western Bloc, dominated by the United States with NATO among its allies, and powers in the Eastern Bloc, [ dominated by the Soviet Union along with the Warsaw Pact. This began after the success of their temporary wartime alliance against Nazi Germany, leaving the USSR and the US as two superpowers with profound economic and political differences In June 1947, in accordance with the Truman Doctrine, the United States enacted the Marshall Plan, a pledge of economic
assistance for all European countries willing to participate, including the Soviet Union.[69] The plan's aim was to rebuild the democratic and economic systems of Europe and to counter perceived threats to Europe's balance of power, such as communist parties seizing control through revolutions or elections.[70] The plan also stated that European prosperity was contingent upon German economic recovery.In January 1961, just prior to leaving office, Eisenhower formally severed relations with the Cuban government. In April 1961, the administration of newly elected American President John F. Kennedy mounted an unsuccessful CIA-organized ship-borne invasion of the island at Playa Girón and Playa Larga in Las Villas Province—a failure that publicly humiliated the United States.[163] Castro responded by embracing Marxism-Leninism, and the Soviet Union pledged to provide further support ]
